The guitar part on track 1 was salvaged from an old tape or MiniDisc Andy sent me quite some time ago. A 1m40s section has been looped and my saz overdubbed.
The 'lyrics' on track 2 are taken from a theoretical statistics paper which I had been proofreading...the back of one page got used as scrap paper for a note I wrote to Jim, which led him to the idea for this track. He created a piece involving concertina and layered vocals (what he called "statistical funk") on a borrowed four-track, sent it to me, and I overdubbed saz and percussion. Jim's part of Red Dog Green Dog.
Track 6 is part of a longer mix involving my saz, Paul's didg and Dave's electronics. My saz part was originally recorded over some beats Dave had produced (not audible here).
